Then what's the difference between that and 0.6.5?

One suggestion has been (and I think this is what NCSA 1.4 and Netsite do) is
to start with "x" servers, and when all servers are being used and a new
request comes in fork a short-lived one-request-service child, up to "y"
possible children total.  I don't know if that's possible without serializing
requests though.... what's a *real* solution is to distinguish between
short-lived responses and long-lived responses, so that 10 people downloading
a 6 meg MPEG movie from your site over a 14.4 modem don't swamp your 
10-child server.  Any ideas?
